Implications of Stability Analysis for Heat Transfer at Yucca Mountain
An analytical solution has been obtained to the stability problem for an infinite horizontal layer of gas with its humidity constrained to 100%. Latent heat transfer makes convective heat...

Hydrogeochemical Site Investigations by Teollisuuden Voima Oy, Finland
Groundwater samples collected from cored boreholes (500-1000 m), borehole wells and multilevel piezometers in crystalline bedrock have been characterized and classified. The reference...

Research at Howard University on Retardation of Radionuclides by Sorption Processes During Host Rock—Ground Water Interactions
Extensive sorption measurements were made over a period of several years, of major radionuclides in J-13 Well water with Yucca Mountain tuff samples. Most of these measurements were single...

Flow Visualization and Relative Permeability Measurements in Rough-Walled Fractures
Two-phase (gas-liquid) flow experiments were done in a natural rock fracture and transparent replicas of natural fractures. Liquid was injected at constant volume flow rate, and gas was...

Fresno/Clovis Water Management Plan
The Fresno/Clovis Metropolitan Area (FCMA) in California has historically relied solely on untreated, undisinfected groundwater as a source of potable water to serve 500,000 people. Contamination...

Computerized Data Processing and Geographic Information Systems Applications for Development of a 3-Dimensional Groundwater Flow Model
A 3-dimensional numerical groundwater flow model was developed for a 100 square mile area located in the Santa Clara Valley, California. The model development relied upon data base and...

Technical and Organizational Constraints on Surface and Groundwater Irrigation in Small-Holder Areas of S. Asia
Variable irrigation supply and the independent character of the S. Asian small-holder combine to present a difficult problem in irrigation management. Attempts to introduce advanced technology...

Coupled Simulation-Optimization Approach to Wellhead Protection Area Delineation to Minimize Contamination of Public Ground-Water Supplies
A loosely coupled simulation-optimization procedure is used to determine the steady-state pumping rates for individuals wells in a multiple well municipal wellfield that result in the...

Investigation and Rehabilitation of the Moses Lake Larson Wellfield
In 1988, low levels of trichloroethylene (TCE) were detected in several of the Larson wells operated by the City of Moses Lake. The wells are up to 800 feet deep and are completed in fractured...

When the Well Runs Dry Paying for Storm Water
Much will be said during this conference about the need for various structural and nonstructural approaches toward mitigating problems related to storm water quality and quantity management....

Resource Constrained Time-Space Scheduling Model
This study aims to develop a resource constrained time-space scheduling model, mainly aiming application to pipeline laying world for gas supply under roads in urban area. This model can...

High-Tech Landfill Caps
Just as federal and state regulations detail every aspect of landfill location, construction and operation, they now detail every aspect of its design closure. A typical municipal solid...

The Role of Information for Offshore Natural Gas
Natural gas may play a larger role in the Nation's energy mix. Extensive reservoirs of natural gas exist on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). But exploration for oil and gas on the OCS...

The Value of the Federal Oil/Gas OCS and Its Required Nexus with the Changing Perceived Quality of Rights
A particular few of thousands of hardly distinguishable and certainly previously undistinguished Federal OCS oil/gas tracts can suddenly become prizes of great value. Vice versa, prized...

Environmental Compliance and Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration and Production
The economic impacts of multiple environmental regulations of offshore oil and gas exploration and production are examined using an integrated, investment-production-regulatory model developed...

The Whole Picture: Federal Statutory and Regulatory Authorities Which Govern Oil and Gas Activities on the Alaskan Outer Continental Shelf
Oil and gas activities conducted on the Alaska Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) are subject to multiple Federal laws which result in safe operations and environmental protection. Lessees...

Environmental Compliance Monitoring Program for Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration and Development and Production Activities in the Pacific OCS Region
The Pacific Outer Continental Shelf Region of Minerals Management Service has recently development and is implementing an Environmental Compliance Monitoring Program. Each of the 24 oil...

The Permitting Process for Oil Exploration and Development Projects on the North Slope of Alaska—An Oil Company Perspective
The five oil fields of Alaska's North Slope, including the giant Prudhoe Bay field the largest oil field in North America, contribute approximately 25% of United State domestic oil production...

Resource Extraction Activities in the Coastal Zone—The Impact of Offshore Oil Production on Coastal Communities
There are few studies that examine the impact of offshore oil extraction on social problems, educational attainment and economic health of communities. The results of this study demonstrate...

Slides and Slumps on the Coastal Zone Between San Miguel and El Descanso, Baja California, Mexico
The coastline between Tijuana and Ensenada is being subject to intensive development, mainly as resort property, and because of the roughness of the adjacent areas inland, the coastal...
